Amquel removes Chlorine, Chloramines and Ammonia safely, easily and quickly. Amquel protects pond fishes and invertebrates by quickly eliminating, in a true single-step action, three of the most toxic chemicals commonly found in water. Does not interfere with the biological nitrogen cycle in your pond. Ammonia is changed into a non-toxic compound the bacteria quickly consume. This bottle treats 960 gallons.

For best results, use with a salicylate-type ammonia test kit.


Internal Id


Contains sodium hydroxymethanesulfonate.


The "Standard Dose" of Pond AmQuel is one teaspoon (5 ml) per 10 gallons of fresh or salt water, or one liquid ounce (30 ml) per 60 gallons of water, or one cup (8 liquid ounces - 20 ml) per 480 gallons of water. For other measurements estimate the amounts needed, such as 1/4 teaspoon for 2.5 gallons of water, or 3 teaspoons for 30 gallons, etc.

To remove chlorine and chloramines (chlorine combined with ammonia) out of the tap from public water supplies add one Standard Dose (see definition above) to the water to break the bond between the chlorine and ammonia, and to remove all the chlorine, and ammonia that may be in public water supplies. This will remove up to 3 mg/L chloramines (as monochloramine, NH2Cl). No greater dose is needed for removing chloramines or chlorine from public water supplies.

To remove toxic ammonia compounds that build up in aquariums and ponds from the excretion of body wastes by fishes, invertebrates, bacteria, and other aquatic organisms start with a Standard Dose (see definition above). This Standard Dose not only removes the chlorine and chloramines described above, but will also remove (detoxify) at the same time 1.0 mg/L (= approx. 1.0 ppm) of all ammonia compounds in fresh or salt water. Use multiple doses to remove more than 1.0 mg/L ammonia from the water.

It is suggested that the ammonia concentration of the water be tested prior to the addition of Pond AmQuel to determine how much Pond AmQuel is needed. Also see Contraindications for when there may be problems in the use of Pond AmQuel). The pH of the water being treated affects the speed at which Pond AmQuel removes ammonia. The lower the pH, the slower Pond AmQuel works. At a pH of 7.0 (neutral) Pond AmQuel will remove the ammonia in less than 5 minutes. Several minutes more are needed at higher pHs.
